Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) can be seen making a hasty retreat as an immigration rights activist confronts Rep. Steve King (R-IA) over the Republican Party’s latest move against immigration reform, in footage posted by the DREAM Action Coalition Monday night.
The video, which was shot during a fundraiser in Okoboji, Iowa, shows Paul biting into a hamburger as coalition co-director Erika Andiola introduces herself to King. As soon as she tells King, “I’m actually a DREAMer, myself” — referring to young undocumented immigrants covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — Paul puts the burger down and appears to be chewing more rapidly as a staff member leads him away from the conversation.

What part of "here illegally" do these DREAMers not get. And what part of we (who are here legally) fed them, etc., do they not appreciate when they then demand yet more from us as if they are somehow owed it?
I don't care who they are or where they came from. I only care that they broke the laws and then leached off us. If we sent them back home, maybe all those goodies they received off my hard work would benefit their own country so that more like them could STAY THERE instead of coming here and demanding food, clothing, shelter, education, health care, and other things that I am currently struggling to provide my own child because I'm taxed to provide it all for them and others like them who come like ever increasing swarms of locusts from all over the world.

Soooooo, an illegal (Who should have been detained and deported) confronts King, and Paul leaves the area is what again????
And if he did skedaddle on, what is the issue?? Arguing with morons like "Dreamers", who are in fact here illegally, isn't exactly something that is of any value.
They aren't citizens. They represent people that value good feelings and excuses as to why it is okay to break laws. They don't vote legally. Soooo, why should an elected official waste time with them?
This kind of crap makes me watch this video and laugh...www.liveleak.com...

" Rand Paul skitters away like a cockroach when confronted by two DREAM act activists. "
So Paul wipes his mouth off, gets up slowly, and .....
Goes back to blabbering? Profiting off of plagiarism and blaming his staffers?

I guess that is only applicable to White US Citizens.
So, let me get this straight.....The issue is in fact legality and this little thing of committing a crime by coming here in the manner that they did. So, you propose rewarding illegal criminals with legal status.
